I am a special education teacher and I have an access online

I am a special education teacher and I have an access online to esped program to complete the IEP of my students as well as to review the IEPs of my students for compliance with the state of Texas. This access was given to me by special education division. Until currently they blocked my username and password ***** Im on leave and my position had been replaced by another teacher. I was on leave since Oct 2016 until now and I believed they just blocked my account for this program last week. Prior to that Im still able to access my stident's IEPs and see if theyre in compliance. Have I done any violation? What is breach of confidentiality? i have not disclose any contents of the ieps. Its their fault that they didnt block my account since I was on leave and they knew I was on leave. Its their stupidity not mine.
